About the tour

On this tour, we go back to the days that Jaffa drew adventurous characters who dreamed of redemption. This small and quaint area has a very unique look, feel, and history. Walking down the cobblestone streets, our guide will reveal the true scope of the efforts to resettle in the Land of Israel in modern times. On this tour, we'll visit a place so secretive that even locals don't really know much about.

Meet Tomer


Tomer has been guiding tours in the city since 2008. What started out of fascination about his family's history - the Chelouche family is one of the founding families of Tel Aviv - has seen him meet new people and show the city that has transformed over the course of several generations. On Tomer's tours, you'll get to discover fascinating stories about its history, culture, and much more, especially since Tomer's ancestors participated in the establishment of the first Jewish neighborhood built outside the walls of ancient Jaffa, and the modern city of Tel Aviv.
